^ Subject: Trouble with "?_______".

I have recently installed the latest update, gap3r4p2, but I am having
trouble with the help feature. Whenever I type in, for example, ?group
or ?CHR or ?'whatever topic...' and hit enter, it displays the topic
just fine, but when it is done giving me the text on the topic, it
gives me the "gap>" prompt but automatically types in the help statement
I just issued again. Then it just displays it over and over again in the
same fashion. If it is a long help, it gives me the "-- <space> for more --"
prompt, but after it is fully done the topic it displays it once again.
I have to hit "CTRL-C" or "break" to make it stop, but then it ejects
me from the program. Can you help?

If it helps, it is installed on a 486 IBM-PC with DOS 6.2 and Windows 3.1.
Also, the previous version, gap3r4
p1, didn't do this at all. I am
currently downloading doc3r4p2 to reinstall just that part of it. I am
doing this because of some experimenting I did, like transferring some
files from gap3r4p1 to gap3r4p2 untill it worked again. DOC seems to
contain the problem.

Thanks for any help! I also ask the gap-forum to please excuse all the
software/technical questions I have been asking lately. Thank you.
